Krough, it's all your fault! Now I'm addicted to mache! Thank you.
I also found that after the glue mache sets up a bit, you can kinda sculpt it like clay..to an extent, but some of the same principles apply.
I really like the look. The skull I just did that was done in slush latex looked too happy. My wife was saying he had a cute face, so yesterday I had to take a knife to his face and redo him. Back to the drawing board for him. But I really like the look on his face that you are doing. It really shows fear.
You really captured the look of abject terror here. I know you're doing this as a groundbreaker, but I can imagine that this guy would look great as a "scared to death" corpse or in a mausoleum as someone who was buried alive. Great job, Morbie!
